Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is an upcoming action-adventure game developed by Sean Han Tani, Marina Kittaka and published by Analgesic Productions.

Players will go on an adventure in New Theland island, where the Nano Dust infects the people there and distorts their emotions and desires. You will control Nova, a Nano Cleaner who is trying to explore the island and find a way to get rid of all the Dust to save everyone. Here is the trailer of Anodyne 2: Return to Dust.

Anodyne 2: Return to Dust is a well-designed top-down game with 2D Zelda-like adventures inside of character's bodies and a 3D world with cities, valleys, and wastelands.

You will travel in a surreal world

Along the way through many 3D gorgeous and haunting locations, you will get to meet and speak with many strange, memorable characters. Using new technology, Anodyne 2: Return to Dust revamp the art of the S1, PS2, and N64 era and the 2D art of the GBA and SNES.

In 2D, you will have to use your weapon, Nano Vacuum, to collect dust, suck up and combat enemies with unexpected challenges that will reveal the characters’ inner lives.

Fight in 2D and defeat monsters

Try to look out for magical Cards as they will give you access to many locations in the outside of New TheLand.

Like the Final Fantasy series, the stories of Anodyne 1 and Anodyne 2 are separate stories so you don't need to play the former to understand this one. However, if you played it, you will notice some interesting connections between the two in this game.
